Main Benefits

Time Saving

When seeking faster reprocessing cycles, optimized machine configuration using additional water pre-heating tanks and "smart hydraulic circuits" helps achieve a reduction of overall cycle time.
This fast configuration allows the cycle to start before the sump is full.

Water Saving

Steelco LC Series, in compliance with regulations and according to the defined washing/disinfection process, allows to reuse higher-quality water for subsequent cycles thanks to the water recirculation tank. This lowers the consumption of water to a minimum, bringing you closer to the achievement of your sustainable goals.

Energy Saving

Reduced cycle time and thermal insulation drive lower energy consumption.
Moreover, thanks to the optional steam condenser with heat recovery and a water recirculation tank, energy normally used for heating up water is saved.
The drying phase can also be optimised in duration and energy consumption through a humidity sensor, which ensures the exact time and energy needed for the ideal result based on the current load.

Device Configurations

Even if thermal disinfection is always preferred, some instruments and pieces of equipment cannot outstand elevated temperatures, thus requiring chemical disinfection.

Uncompromised performance is achieved when alternating thermal and chemical disinfection cycles. By choosing the “Hybrid” configuration of LC 80, it is possible to run thermal or chemical disinfection cycles by simply selecting the appropriate cycle according to the load to be reprocessed.

The whole Steelco LC trolley washers’ range is available in different configurations for heating washing water and drying air:

  • Indirect steam heating and electrically heated drying;
  • Fully indirect steam heating;
  • Fully electrical heating;
  • Combined indirect steam heating with electrical heating; to activate as back-up solution in case of temporary lack of steam.

Thermal Version

2 Tanks

A first pre-heating 65 °C / 149 °F tank reduces cycle time by heating water and maintaining its optimal temperature for the washing phase.
A second pre-heating 85 °C / 185 °F demineralized water tank radically reduces thermal disinfection process time and, consequently, total cycle time.
With the optional water recycling kit, thermal disinfection water can be recovered in the first pre-heating tank for the next cycle's washing phase.

3 Tanks

By adding a third tank, Steelco LC Series' modularity allows to recover water from up to two phases of the previous cycle, depending on cycle setup and load.
This helps to save time, energy, and water as there is no need to empty and re-fill all the tanks at every cycle.

4 Tanks

The fourth tank can be used to reduce cycle time when the pre-washing phase is needed.
This configuration, in compliance with regulations and according to the defined washing/disinfection process, makes it possible to reuse an even greater amount of higher-quality water for subsequent cycles.

Chemical Version

2 Tanks

A first pre-heating 60 °C / 140 °F tank reduces cycle time by heating water and maintaining its optimal temperature for the washing phase.
A second pre-heating 70 °C / 158 °F water tank radically reduces rinsing process time and, consequently, total cycle time.

3 Tanks

A third tank can be added in case a pre-wash phase is needed. This helps save time in loading cold water.
Steelco ECO options for LC trolley washers are the perfect solution to an easy and efficient workflow.

Hybrid Version

LC 80 series’ configuration can be tailored to alternating chemical and thermal disinfection processes without compromising either productivity or water/chemicals/energy savings. A single washer optimized for different types of loads.

The standard configuration of the hybrid version includes three tanks, one of which is dedicated to chemical disinfection.

A fourth tank can be added to enable water recycling when the device is used in thermal-disinfection mode. In fact, the device acts as described in the three-tank thermal disinfection version with an additional tank for chemicals.

Steelco offers a wide range of different trolleys, designed based on various washing needs and including trolleys with injection ports.
